Uses and abuses of mental health narratives

Dr. Stefan Rennick-Egglestone (Senior Research Fellow, School of Health Sciences and Institute of Mental Health, University of Nottingham)
Stefan’s research looks at how real-life accounts of recovery from mental health problems can be used to help others. He will discuss a recent systematic review which reveals the various ways in which mental health narratives have been used by healthcare services, and which identifies uses that might be thought of as abusive. Stefan first started developing an interest in this topic in 2016, and he plans to give a personal account of how early ideas are developed into rigorous collaborative scientific research, which can then in turn influence future scholarship.

Dementia: Prediction and Prevention

Tom Goddard (PhD Student, University of Nottingham)
Hi, I’m Tom, and I’m a second year PhD student at the University of Nottingham. My work looks into whether we can predict cases of dementia before they happen. I also look into how different dementias develop, to see if we can find anywhere in the process where drugs could be used to stop progression.

A research psychologist by background, but now walking down the avenue of the bright lights of technology. Shazmin’s Ph.D. and role at BlueSkeye are around developing technology to improve mental health using AI.
